Windows 8 is designed to make the most of touchscreen, so with 10-point multitouch displays you can flick and swish your way through your applications. Improved on-screen keyboards make typing a breeze, and you can keep working or playing for longer thanks to the improved battery life that Windows 8 offers.
Sleek, stylish and fast, Ultrabooks™ benefit from the cloud service used by Windows 8, which reduces the need for an optical drive. With access to the Windows Store you can download all the apps you want, and low-powered processing lets your Ultrabook™‘s battery last even longer.
Perfect for home entertainment and more, Windows 8 on your All-in-One PC provides you with all the apps you’ll need for the whole family, with security to protect the younger ones. Everyone will love using the touchscreen to zip through Windows 8’s screens, whilst the Start screen keeps you updated about the things you love.
You’ll be able to gesture your way through Windows 8 when you’re on your laptop, navigating through apps and web pages with ease. The cloud connection lets you access all your files wherever you take your laptop, and as Windows 8 can run on low-power processors, your laptop battery life is vastly improved.
Get more from your PC with a Windows 8 Desktop PC. Boasting the power for fluid editing, gaming and document creation, Windows 8 puts the potential for anything in your hands. Fast and fluid, it makes work and play better than ever for a brilliant computing experience.
The new Windows 8 has been redesigned for touch but still works great with a mouse and keyboard.

Can I upgrade my PC from an older version of Windows to Windows 8?
Yes. Your upgrade experience will depend on what version of Windows you currently have. For example, if your PC is running Windows 7 Home Basic or Home Premium, your files, programs and settings will easily transfer to Windows 8. If your PC is running Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, Windows XP or Windows Vista, you’ll need to reinstall your programs. Some features (like those that support touchscreen) may require a new PC.
